I have this little problem with making appointments -- for the doctor, the dentist, the DMV. I put it off forever. And, even though getting pampered for a few hours is quite a bit more fun than getting teeth drilled, I rarely get my hair done either. Since college, I've only been going once a year. I know, I know -- I'm pretty much a hairstylist's worst nightmare. That's why I try to go to the same person every time. That way, she'll know what to expect: split ends, stubborn knots, outgrown roots and grays galore.

Exactly one year ago, Sheila at Byu-Ti gave me some gorgeous highlights that became lighter over the summer. It was a fun look, but by the end of 2012, I was ready for a change. I wanted to go back to having dark, dark hair -- almost black -- as that's closest to what my natural color was as a kid. It makes me feel more like, well, me!

Since my last appointment, Sheila was promoted twice and moved to the salon's brand-new location in Brentwood. She did an amazing job, as expected. I couldn't be happier with the result of her cutting, coloring and styling efforts over the course of three hours. If you're in the area, I highly recommend her. Be sure to mention me when you go in! This is not a sponsored post, by the way, just an honest review. :)

  5. LOVE your dark locks. I just refreshed mine...had tried a different color that was just too light. Like you, I prefer my dark-brown-almost-black mane...it's the only way I really feel like me.

    She did a great job on yours!

  9. I totally understand that appointment mentality. Sometimes it can be such a pain to make appointments and have to stick to them. Your hair looks cute!
    Also, you visited my blog about a week ago and left a comment. Even though I responded to you on there, I wanted to stop by here and tell you thank you as well!

  12. Love your dark hair! It really suits you. I used to have my hair done once or twice a year too. Now that I. Older the upkeep is more important, so I go every three months or so.still, I push it until the last minute!

  13. Your hair looks FAB0ulous, dahling! I'm the same way about my hair. I don't get it done as often as I should. I pluck tiny baby grey hairs and I have to get at least 3 to 4 inches of dry ends cut off! I do it to save money though and because I hate sitting in a chair for over an hour! -Jess

  16. Your hair always looks gorgeous, but it IS really nice to give your locks a little TLC. Good for you- I am the same way, but said in 2013, I am totally going to keep regular appointments, even if I have to endure getting parking tickets to do so, I always run the meter over when I'm at the salon. :/
